Franciscan Action Network and the Franciscan Network for Migrants hosted a webinar on Root Causes of Migration on May 17, 2023 where we heard a very interesting presentation on the history of migration from a global perspective. The stories of Ciro and Yaneth and their families’ migration experience through the Darien Gap in Panama gave pause while Salvadorian Friar Rene Flores, OFM offered the Franciscan perspective of providing consistent support to migrants.
If you missed any of the event, we have made the recording available in two languages: the English recording is below and the Spanish recording is on our YouTube channel. Additionally, the presentations from the event are linked here.
Additionally, the Interfaith Immigration Coalition (IIC) of which FAN is an active member, has developed this new, one-page resource highlighting five things faith communities can do to welcome asylum seekers in the wake of the end of Title 42.
